Chanel Velvet Boy Quilted Flap Bag and Duo Color Clutch Bag

Other Brands

Chanel-Velvet-Flap-Bag

If you took a few minutes to read our made-with-love Chanel Leather Guide (I assume you already have), then you will know that generally, handbags made from Velvet are the lowest priced. It’s an opportunity to catch a CC designer bag and lock it up in your wardrobe.

However, the design is entirely different and of course the feel. The Boy Quilted Flap Bag in Velvet feels much softer (not the lambskin soft of course) and the boy in calfskin feels much more durable. They say its not easy to clean ‘Velvet’, you can read more about this material at our Chanel Leather Guide.

Besides the material used, the look is exactly the same – you get the iconic Boy CC logo on the front, the big strong shoulder chain strap and its entirely quilted. I think the Velvet version is great to have, if you already own one in leather.Chanel-Duo-Color-Clutch-Bag
It’s true what they say, I am here to confirm; ‘Chanel bags never end’. They are like fairytale stories with the ending, they are like drama series but without the final chapter. And a few personal words for the bag addicted (no cure, we guarantee), as long as you keep loading that gun, you will always have enough bullets to spree – it’s the only way to feed our obsessions.
Now too long ago, we did a full review on the Chanel Duo Color Flap Bag. This bag, which is cheaper than the classic flap bag, It’s quite similar to the ‘easy flap bag’ or the ‘CC Crave’, if you can remember that too!
But anyways, Chanel also made a Duo Color Clutch Bag, which is also available in store right now. It’s features a CC logo on the top, quilted and it comes with a long shoulder strap. Basically it’s the same design like the Chanel Coco Pleats Clutch Bag. If you need a Chanel to go from day to night, this is what I would pick. (and if your wardrobe is stocked with endless flap bags).
This bag is named ‘Duo Color’ because it has bicolored leather featured in the interior lining and the interior of the strap.

Porsche and Chopard honor Le Mans with limited edition time pieces

Fashion

The 84th edition of 24 Hours of Le Mans saw the unveiling of Chopard’s Superfast Chrono Porsche 919 Black Edition, a 100-piece limited edition chronograph. Inspired by the new Porsche919 Hybrid, the watch will be available only at Chopard boutiques. The 45mm titanium case of the timepiece is one of the most favored materials to be used in the world of endurance racing. Further bead-blasted and blackened by DLC treatment, the case not only carries a classy sheen but also ensures that it is resistant to scratches. The durability extends below the surface of water as well, making the watch submergible up to 100 meters.

The bezel is studded with eight blackened screws while the crown is fashioned to resemble a steering wheel. The dial is flanked by two distinctly red rubber pushers. The car analogy is taken further in the case middle, which is made to resemble the cooling fins in the car’s engine.

The watch is powered by a Chopard Caliber 03.05M. Other important features include a 60-minute power reserve and a flyback function. The mechanical self-winding chronograph movement has been COSC certified.

Shop Handbags and Accessories from the Best Private Collections at Bonhams

Other Brands

The resale market for rare designer bags is hotter than ever, but what’s often lost in the news stories about the ways those bags change hands are the stories of the bags themselves. British auction house Bonhamskeeps those personal tales of shopping triumph in mind when sourcing fine handbags and accessories like the ones in its latest auction, set to begin November 10 in Los Angeles.

Among the available pieces are several from best-selling novelist Barbara Taylor Bradford. As she tells it, her husband of over 50 years often buys her Hermès bags to commemorate holidays and special occasions, and on one of the couple’s yearly trips to Paris, he was intent on giving her a Kelly.

Unfortunately, all of the Kellys in Hermès’ rue du Faubourg St. Honoré boutique were spoken for, as they so often are. After a little eavesdropping in French, though, Taylor Bradford’s husband was able to secure the special edition black-and-white Kelly that you see below, which had just been turned down by a customer who had ordered it months before.

Whether the specifics of a piece’s history are known or unknown, one of the great joys in buying vintage or pre-owned luxury items is the knowledge that they had a life before you, and they bring to your wardrobe a touch of a stylish stranger’s personal fashion history. Luxury accessories have long lifespans, and any of the pieces in Bonhams’ upcoming auction would make a fine heirloom to pass to a daughter or niece, the piece’s tale intact.

Below, check out some of our favorite pieces from Bonhams’ upcoming auction. The auction, which includes over 200 Hermès scarves in their boxes and over 400 lots of estate jewelry, in addition to fine handbags, will take place on November 9, as part of a 2-day Period Art & Design auction at the Bonhams showroom in Los Angeles, and is now online at Bonhams.com.

Dolce And Gabbana Agata Bag In Grained Calfskin

Other Brands

Dolce-Gabbana_Agata_Bag

Though we haven’t featured much Dolce & Gabbana Handbags so far, we can’t deny that their craftsmanship is one of the finest in Italy. And I am not only talking about assembling and putting the bags together, but also the amazing designs – so luxurious, so feminine that it literally makes any woman feel sexy.

Here’s a piece that captured my heart and soul, it’s the Dolce & Gabbana Agata Bag in full black. The Agata collection is not new and has been featured in different prints, but this exceptional piece is absolutely to-die-for because it’s simply ‘perfect’.

First notice the shape and the components like the handles, body and the metal closure, they are like ‘one’, each piece supporting the other. Everything feels so classic and timeless, because of the black color. The top closure is embellished with D&G Logoed Ball and it looks like two pearls.

Crafted from grained calfskin, a durable leather that makes the bag forever. There is also a pouch with customized compact holder in the interior; you can also carry the Dolce & Gabbana Agata Bag with shoulder strap.

By the way, this bag is inspired by Saint Agatha of Sicily, a holy bag.

Measuring 27 x 20 x 12 cm, priced at $3295 USD or €1950 euro’s at Dolce & Gabbana e-store.
